Hey all.
I've got an NA in yellow with terrible, horrible, flaking, peeling paint.
First miata, and i've had it since last august. Came here looking for info, discussions, and parts.
This is my first RWD car, my first 2 seater, and my first Miata, but I'm no stranger to working on cars or owning them.
I believe nothing is sacred and I will modify anything I want, any way I want. Cars are meant to be driven hard and enjoyed, whatever that means.

Oh? I know there used to be another miata that parked a few spaces down from me. but I haven't seen it in months.
I'm not aware of any other miatas in the complex, but there are a lot of garages, and I work weird hours, so i may just not have seen it.

Haha thats funny. Ive definitely seen your car in the complex. The other miata was probably a green and tan NB? Thats my car, and is the one featured here: https://www.miataturbo.net/engine-performance-56/k-swap-how-book-k24a2-nb2-swap-build-thread-88824/

Hah Thats funny!
I tihnk the one I was thinking of was Blue, but now that I think about it, I think i remember yours now too, and especially noticing the wheels on it.
Pulling into the lot, was/is yours parked on the left or right side of the loop?
I've been parking mine in the garage lately so I'm not getting into a car that's been sitting in the sun all day.
If you're still there and you see me working in the garage, you're welcome to stop by and say Hi. Or wave if you see me driving through.

Right side. The car is still in process and is currently elsewhere until then. I used to have a yellow S2000 race car that you may have seen me pull through a few times too. My current daily is a silver F150. It has a NASA sticker, trackspeed sticker, and 25 hours of thunderhill sticker on the rear glass, with a cal poly engineering license plate holder.

Yah for sure if I see you I'll come say hi.

Oh yeah i've seen your s2000. That thing is awesome. You're in the building next to mine. You've probably seen my previous cars too, a golf and a beetle.
I'd love to know your secrets to getting the NB smogged Although, I think I already know the answer.
